Open Research: four stories from Griffith


Have you heard of Open Access Week?

If so, you already know how marvellous this initiative it. However, if you haven’t, it’s time to get schooled!

Open Access: refers to research data that is free of all restrictions on access it, and free of many restrictions on its use. This means, you get freely available data that you can use without certain copyright or licence restrictions! So much glorious data that can help you with all aspect of study, research, work… the possibilities are endless!

Open Access Week is an opportunity for you to learn about the potential benefits of open access, share and listen to what researchers and academics have learned, and to help to make open access a new norm in scholarship and research.

Of course, you want to know more. To celebrate Open Access Week, Griffith Library is hosting a panel discussion. It will focus on the 2017 theme, “Open in order to…”

Now, if you’re thinking ‘in order to what?’, then you obviously have to come along – as we’ve prepared a panel of experts to answer this question for you.

They’ll discuss their experience in open research, explore what tangible actions Griffith academics and HDR candidates can take to enhance their research and deliver social dividends, and examine how we can balance this with our research performance in ranking schemas.

You’ll also be invited to join the discussion too, as we want to hear your views and insight (hey, you are the future!).
